Shelter cove 80 ish FOW on an anchovy. Caught with several other types of flatfish such at Petrale Sole and undersized CA halibut. Same area I got a good CA halibut in the past.

I was thinking sand sole?

Follow up question, for CA halibut one easy ID is the high arch in their lateral line near the head. Do other flatfish species have that? I was unsure on an ID on one fish caught, but due to the high arch I believed it to be a CA halibut.

All fish were released FWIW.

That’s what most of my ID after the fact was based upon. Here’s a zoomed in pic...

+1 sand sole.  The mottling, lateral line w/out arch, and dorsal free rays clinch it. They're tasty!  Caught one in Bodega a few years ago.

The one you caught has an interesting second eye location, like it never fully migrated topside.
